I propose to implement 2 new command line parameters for grub-mkconfig:

  for searching kernels there

  for restricting list of partitions from os-prober only to this device

see also

and one new environment variable:
which should work in the same way as


This new environment variable will be userful if one wants to omit the temporary rescue media with all it's partitions.

The parameters also should be documented at

And /etc/default/grub should be appended with #GRUB_OS_PROBER_DEVICE_SKIP_LIST example
